This 1959 Butterfly Alexander in Racquet Club Estates was designed by renowned architect William Krisel and has been obsessively restored to it's original vision of space age optimism. The artist brings the same bright palette and sense of fun to the decor that is on display in his retro modern inspired art. Nostalgically themed bedrooms tickle your imagination. Sweeping clerestories and a wall of south facing glass bring the outside in, flooding the house with sunlight and warmth. From your own quarter acre lot enjoy the meditative view of the San Jacinto Mountains, while lounging by the kidney shaped pool. Nap in the hammock under the quiet shade of an olive tree. Wash away your stress in the refreshing outdoor shower (hot and cold) in the completely private backyard. On cool evenings, gather around the flickering firebowl for a nightcap. A mile from downtown and two short blocks from the historic Riviera hotel. Make your mid-century immersion complete at Googie Ranch.
